To work locally on my computer, I generally "disable" the "Network Enable" (LAN) icon on my desktop, just in case, when I no longer need to be connected to the internet. I have a recent problem where the computer is restarting everytime I try to "enable" the LAN icon. The NIC card is fine as it shows up in the devices. The driver seems fine. I have a McAfee AV product installed, so I do not doubt any viruses (however, can't discount any!). Would need some assistance on this, soonest. Thanks.

I got your issue , for your issue , I f you want to go online hard wired to the router , make sure the Local are connection in the comp is enabled as well you have coted that u can see red cross in the wireless network connection icon, so make sure do not have any preferred networks in the comp.
You Say: " The lan cables are having no problem at all and also the modem and the router. There are no problems there at all. It's just troublesome whenever this box pops up"
If you want to disable this from popping up, just click the connection icon in "network connections" , "properties" , and unclick " Notify me when this connection has limited or no connectivity".
But I think you have a real issue causing this and I would go into the propertirs for your network adapter and remove EVERYTHING, reboot, and put it all back in. Make sure you look at all the properties under TCP/IP etc. and set it all back the same as it was.
This will essentially reinstall ALL your networking componants back to Brand Mew!
If you have problems after this, you have a stting wrong somewhere or a hardware issue.
Hello: What I would say is: go to microsoft update and make sure you have all the updates for your OS.
Then; read the posting (below) from someone who had the same issue:
stacemarie wrote: "XP SP 3 updates some networking sharing system LAN files that cause some configurations to become unaccessable on the workgrouped networks. We cannot - even ping - the network addresses after installing - so it was an uninstall and do a system restore to get to the original good working state of the clients.
Microsoft needs to come up with a patch to fix this as we are seeing more and more networked clients having these connection and sharing problems."
Do you understand the above?
Let me know if you do not know how to unistall SP3 and do a Restore...
When u plug the ethernet CAT cable in the LAN card socket , so you see any light orange or green flashing on the LAN card itself. If yes then right click on my computer >> properties >> Hardware >> device manager>> check in network adapters whether the LAN card is enabled or not If NO the right click on it and enable it check whether it is able to receive any ip address
If u see no light at all Then you might have to install a new LAN card on the system
If your using windows xp, check the following. Go to your start menu go to your control panel (might be under settings, might not.) from control panel, if it says "Choose a Category" click switch to classic view. open your Network Connections Icon. If "Wireless Network Connection" is grayed out, right click it and choose, "Enable."
In Windows Vista Go to the bottom right hand corner of your screen to the icons. Right click on the double monitors (network connection) Select Network and Sharing Center Click on Open Network Connections If "Wireless Network Connections:" is grayed out, right click it and choose, "Enable."
If it is enabled, and you already have wireless built in to your laptop, then it's possible the wrong wireless card is enabled. If this is the case, when you open your network connections, you will have two Wireless Network Connection Icons. A Wireless Network Connection, and a Wireless Network Connection 2. Make sure 2 is enabled, and the first one without a number is disabled.
Assuming you initially set up the router using the wired lan adapter and lead, enabled DHCP in the settings.
First stand right next to your router; Dells wireless is a little tempremental, go to control panel and in there should be Dell wireless monitor, open this up refresh it and see if it finds any wireless networks, if so try to connect.
Dissable your wired network lan adapter.
Go to the properties of your wireless card and on the TCP/IP line click properties again and ensure that obtain an ip address automatically is selected, press ok and restart the pc.
